Most forums don't have provisions for CAD drawings because they are not drawable on the internet. You won't be able to view them in any browser, so they would have to be as attachments (then only viewable by people with Illustrator or CAD programs that read .dwg files.

You can post them on a server and provide links, but most people aren't going to be able to view them at all.

Your best bet is to convert them to PDFs and attache to a post for people to look at. Otherwise, PNGs and JPGs are save and web friendly.

I work in Autocad for a living and have had to get drawings on the net many times. Easiest way I found was to copy them in autocad then paste them in photoshop then save as a PDF.
